witnessed one or both of these collisions. george, can you hear us? >> i can hear you. >> what did you see? >> i was in a car driving up just gotten out of the battery tunnel driving north on west street when enormous explosion happened. and i think it was larger than a construction explosion. i looked out the window and what appeared to be an enormous tire smashed into the ground and i believe it hit the car to the right of me. it was just so scary. and there was also a ton of debris fall. i jumped out of the car and i ran south away from the building because i thought there would be further explosions. >> and have you seen anyone injured on the ground? >> a man next to me was hit by a piece of debris on his arm, and they said that someone had been badly hurt in a car ahead of me. i'm not certain if it was the car next to me. i can't verify that. all i can say is a lot of debris was falling. it was very confusing because everybody, i think, immediately assumed that a bomb had exploded and that sort of -- you know, had people thinking that furthe. bombs may explode. there was sort of a rus

told and fbi investigators out here on the scene. they're not letting us again near the home which is where the white truck is parked. we want to go to sky 7, overhead right now this, is the same house where police discovered the 73-year-old dead nearly two weeks ago. they've been searching for his son ever since. authorities not releasing identity of the person found in the home here today or the cause of death. all they're saying is that the body discovered here was discovered when authorities came back to the home today to look for evidence again. so we want to take a look at the people that have been involved in this crime spree this, is a photo of frederick salas. police say he may be the fifth victim at the hands of efron valdmoreo. valdmorrow was killed last week following a high-speed chase in which is he believed to have strangled his girlfriend, cindy tran to death. today, police say they consider frederick salas missing. >> no comment on that so far. as you know l. >> as far as we're concerned he's still a missing person until we make a positive identification of the bod
is coming in from all over the country and around the world, the domestic desk, covering the u.s., the foreign desk, watching events around the world, and the media desk bringing in all the video and live pictures, 24/7. >>> as campaign season sicks off, president obama is hitting the road to unveil some new proposals to try to jump start the u.s. economy and create some needed jobs. mr. obama is about to head off to a labor day event in milwaukee where he'll announce a $50 billion plan to invest in the nation's roads, theral way -- railways and the air force. mike emanuel traveling with the president is in milwaukee and how will this infrastructure proposal work? >> reporter: well, gregg, essentially the president wants to lay it out, he's got to get congress to approve it, but as you mentioned, infrastructure projects, the 3rs, roads, railways, and runways. let's take a look 59 -- at the numbers, the plan will call for rebuilding 150,000 miles of road, maintain 4000 miles of rails across the country and rehabilitate or reconstruct 150 miles of runway. i should mention this even
started before 8:00 this morning and according to what police are telling us, they brought a person, this hostage, from somewhere else to the bank. what does all this tell you? >> well, chris, first of all, my background is as an fbi agent and haostage negotiator and i have been involved in bank hostage situations in the past. when they bring someone to the bank it suggests probably one of two things. number one, they had kidnapped someone, the robbers, whoever they are, had kidnapped someone and were trying to force him or her to get money out of the bank's atm. we call those rapid robberies or quick robberies sometimes. the second is that it may be someone who either works for the bank or who is known at the bank and they used that person to get into the bank at 8:00, realized the bank doesn't open until 9:00. but if they get in at 8:00, that would really give the robbers, unfortunately, inside the bank before customers would start to come. as you know, chris, banks also have television, tv sets and, of course, msnbc is aware of that and i think will be very guarded in anything we
police procedures and what not that would be used in any crime scene were used in connection with this event. mike does mention the excellent work that the fbi did piecing together the puzzle that led to the identification of the terrorists within a short period of time. however, the preventive side of it definitely became more of a military exercise. even in that regard, the fbi and department of justice had central roles to play to develop a strategy that could be implemented to look at our borders. >> there had been a number of terrorist attacks. there were the embassies in east africa. the first world trade center attack. you could even go back to the u.s. marine barracks bombing in beirut in 1983. in every case with the united states government did principally was to send out the fbi to try to find people you could identify as perpetrators so that they could be captured and prosecuted. what you hear from all of the discussion and is very important for people to focus on is that this was a different case. this was not about going out to find people who did it to punish th
. >> overnight we learned the fbi put out a bulletin saying they are concerned the event could endanger the u.s. the fbi says there is no evidence of a specific threat but it's has high confidence and credible information that extremists may retaliate if this florida church burns the koran. it could endanger u.s. troops and the state department asks every u.s. embassy to boost security. >> that a pastor in florida with more -- no more than 50 people can make this outrageous and distressful, disgraceful planne. >> the pastor has no intention of backing down even after his internet provider pulled both of his website. >> i think it is a violation of our freedom of expression and speech, because they are trying to shut us down. >> opposition is mounting from washington and around the world and from new york. >> if you are about religion, whether christian or muslim, why do you want to offend people? >> heightening concerns is the controversy about building a mosque near ground zero. the imam now says a moving the mosque could spur a violent backlash from muslim extremists. a senior adviser says ev
states will say thank you very much. the president can use personnel changes to try to change the tone for the next couple of years. those are things we'll be watching at the white house. jenna: definitely a developing story. thank you so much, mike emanuel at the white house. jon: just 42 days to go until you'll be voting in midterm elections. brand-new fox polls just out in key races in the battleground states. molly hen aburg is live in washington with that. delaware, molly has been on everyone's radar screen since christine o'donnell won the primary there, what is it like. >> reporter: you were talking about christine o'donnell she has her work cut out for her. take a look at today's new fox new poll. she is trailing chris coons by 15 points. only 5% of voters say they are undecided in that race. also posing difficulty for o'donnell look at the strength of vote poll. this is a measure of how certain voters are that they will vote for a certain candidate. for the democrat, coon, 91% say they are certain of their vote for him. 8% may change it. 85 say they are certain of their vote f
to come and change washington by the knew candidates is useful. >> reporter: he pointed to a number of recent primaries and establishment candidates were knocked out by conservatives, including christine o'donnell from delaware. grassroots 7, little bit zero. islam has been a big topic for speakers here and bill bennett, host of "morning in america" spoke of terrorist acts made in the name of islam and islamic leaders who have not repudiated the acts. >> we are angry at what the religion has done to itself and to us. this is a righteous anger. we are angry at what leaders of this religion fail to say. >> reporter: activists head back to the districts on sunday and will attempt to turn the energy into votes. julie? >> julie: caroline shivley reporting from washington, thank you so much, gregg. >> gregg: the results of the highly anticipated straw poll are in. 2,000 conservatives voters putting in their two cents worth deciding who should run in 2012. here it is, according to the family research council, congressman mike pence is the winner. come in second, mike huckabee followed by m
cleared, the loss was actually greater. all of us can remember where we were, what we were doing, and how we felt as the news of the attacks was broadcast over all of the news networks. most of us had the opportunity to experience those attacks through our televisions, most in the privacy of our own homes, where we were able to take in and process, and grieve over what was occurring. the people that we will be talking with today did not have that luxury of learning about the events on their televisions. these were the individuals that were on the front lines that day. they were the men and women who could not watch it on tv, but had to respond. they had to act. they had no time to grieve. they had no time to plan. they had no time to prepare. we had not prepared for what happened that day. they were called upon to improvise. their actions and their decisions could either cost lives or save lives. for me, as an airline pilot, the was not flying that day, i had a burning desire to understand what it was like for these people that were in the air traffic control facility, and the cockpit, an
of the second world war. and the fact that the u.s. army deems it a threat, enough to vaccinate all u.s. troops who are deployed into the arenas of war, i think it's a very real threat. and absolutely out of all the arsenals of biological weapons, it's the most effective because it's hardy resistance. it's a real threat and billions of dollars are spent on coming up with defenses against anthrax. >> despite the amount of spending to date, are we any safer today? and how easy is it for a group to make anthrax and deploy it? >> the paradox of the whole situation is that in the effort to combat possible use of anthrax by a terrorist organization, we've seen an enormous expansion and proliferation of laboratories and personnel who are allowed to work with these so called select agents of which anthrax is one of them. and as security has been lax and oversight has seen accidents and mistakes and lack of event controls, what you have is a real life situation that is far less safe than i think we were a few years ago. and as the government activities proliferate, the chance that terrorists or someone
